Re: [IPk] RE: [CWD UK] Ketone blood strips



There has been a shortage in the wholesalers here for over a month. I pass
my pharmacy daily and it has become a joke. They shake their heads to save
me getting out of the car.
She figures she will probably get a hundred boxes delivered eventually as
she has clicked on them on the order form so often.
I found another shop with 6 spare. So I feel safe again that I have a
supply.
I find them crucial for mini dose Glucagon so I usually have a back up of
four boxes at any given time. My backup got  got used up since the shortage
started with morning ketones and it felt very iffy. In Ireland  we have our
"long-term illness number" we can go in to any chemist and just ask without
a script and they use the number to claim. One time before when there was a
shortage  I drove around Dublin with Grace in the back of the car doing  a
pharmacy/ ketone strip crawl.
Once I had my four packets we returned home, it was our second minidose
Glucagon and staying away from admission is very precious to us.
Best of luck getting some,
Mir
